KOPF/KOPFF/KOPP from Germany>WI>MN
Posted by: Claudia Menzel Date: July 02, 2001 at 19:38:21
  of 91

My maiden name was KOPFF. My ggrandfather was Theodore George Ernest KOPFF, a medical doctor from near Nordhausen, Thuringia, Sachsen, Germany. He was born in 1829 and immigrated to the U.S. in 1856, coming first to Chicago and then to Beaver Dam, WI. We were told that 3 generations of his family were Lutheran ministers. His brother is listed in Nordhausen city directory as Ferdinand KOPP, assistant circuit court judge. Their father was Ernest KOPFF, Lutheran rector and possibly minister in Germany. Any information on this family would be very welcome.
